Wake up and feel the wood! In the first of a series of irresistible standalone romances from New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett, a city girl rediscovers love and lust in the Alaskan wilderness.
Valentine French may be the sassiest dating columnist in New York City, but the abundance of metrosexuals in her adopted metropolis is seriously cramping her style. Where are the beefy all-American boys? Hoping to find some inspiration, Val heads to Alaska, where the men outnumber the women fifteen to one and wrestle grizzly bears for sport. Or so she can only imagine. Suddenly the most eligible bachelorette in a town full of horny lumberjacks, Val is writing her best columns ever. But if she doesn’t get her nose out of her laptop, she just might miss out on Mr. Right.
Logan Burke is the sheriff of the little podunk town that Val finds so charmingly backward. He’s not that different from the guys she’s using for her little experiment; it’s just that one date would never be enough for Logan. As he listens to Val complain about love over beers in the local tavern, he realizes that she can’t see the forest for the trees. Because if she would ever give up her Prada bags and fourteen-dollar martinis, Logan would give her the only luxury that matters: his heart.
I passed over Sex in the Sticks a couple of times at first. I don’t know why maybe it was the title. But then I finally stopped and read the blurb and thought, what the heck.
At first, I didn’t know if I was going to like Valentine. She was a socialite with no paying job. She had a successfully popular blog and loved to shop. She seemed dare I say, shallow? But the more I got into the story, the more I liked her. She was more down to earth than originally expected. I did however like Logan from the start.
The two hit it off and I once they met, I was engrossed in the story completely. While the plot was kinda, sorta, maybe just a little predictable, it was still enjoyable and unique. Overall, Sex in the Sticks was a great read!
